TCL tease Mini-LED tech and promise 8K at CES

TCL's CES 2020 press conference added three new models to the company's QLED lineup.

“TCL is a leader in innovation and continues to push the boundaries to provide our customers with a wider range of products, providing them with a better and more personalised experience – and our 2020 range provide just that,” said TCL Electronics Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Mark Zhang.

Heading up the 2020 range, you've got the TCL X9. A QLED-powered 8K TV, it's the flagship proposition available in 75-inch and 65-inch sizes. It supports both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, local dimming (but TCL haven't disclosed how many zones are involved) plus a retractable built-in camera - though the advantages of having the latter aren't quite clear. 

Australian pricing and availability for the TCL X9 is to be confirmed. 

Then, you've got the TCL C815 and TCL C715. Both are 4K HDR Android TVs. Both feature TCL AI-IN smart functions and support for Dolby Atmos. Both support Dolby Vision and HDR10+ content.  The C815 is available in 65-inches, 75-inches and 55-inches. The TCL C715 is available in 50-inches, 55-inches, and 65-inches.

Local pricing and availability for the TCL C815 and TCL 715 are to be confirmed. 

TCL also teased the integration of Mini-LED in future TVs. They claim that "technology is the next step in developing LCD LED TV picture performance to unrivalled levels of sharp contrast, brilliant luminance and highly stable long-life performance. For more on Mini-LED, check out this guide

TCL's latest wave of announcements comes following a story we ran late last year reporting their failure to deliver the X9 8K TV, which was originally due to launch in September 2019 but never materialised.

TCL say that select 2020 TVswill start to land in Australia in April.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
